All these authors pitching their books, you cry. Will a body never get any rest?
All authors must promote their books. Even New York Times best-selling authors do. Now, I'm not in that league, but my book needs publicity as much as theirs do. And as the cliche goes, it's a jungle out there. (One of the things they tell us newbie writers is not to use cliches (-:).
A blog is one avenue for publicity, as is a website.
Well, here's my blog, such as it is. I think I may subtitle it Adventures of a Newcomer to Authorland.
I also have a website, www.lindabanche.com, under construction, although I still have a long way to go with it.
Ah me, I thought being a writer meant that all I did was write. How wrong I was. I'm a brand new author, and I know next to nothing about blogs (as must be evident by now), and even less about websites (You mean I have to SET ONE UP?). And talking about myself has never been one of my talents.
But I have written a story, and The Wild Rose Press has seen fit to grant me a contract for Lady of the Stars, my Regency time travel. My cover, blurb, and an excerpt are posted on my website.
I certainly hope someone likes it.
Thank you all,
